After meeting your guide and chauffeur at your Lisbon hotel hop aboard your comfy vehicle for a private day trip to Estoril and Cascais. Enjoy the option of four different modes of transport to accommodate your travel needs. Then, as you embark on your journey of what many call the Portuguese Riviera, glimpse out at the diverse Portuguese coastline full of charming towns and glamorous beaches.
First, cruise to the town of Cascais, laced with golden sand beaches and charming restaurants. Discover the 17th century St. Sebastian Chapel and its monumental collection of Oriental china, colorful tiles and stunning art. Then, pass the blue and white Santa Marta lighthouse which reopened as a lighthouse museum in 2007. Next, drive to continental Europe’s westernmost edge, Cape Roca. As you listen to waves crash into the cliffs, stare out over the Atlantic as so many Portuguese navigators once did.
Before continuing to the memorable Estoril Coast, grab lunch at a local restaurant (own expense). Then, hop aboard your vehicle and cruise to Hell’s Mouth (Boca do Inferno). This marvel of mother nature is a dramatic chasm that crumbled by the endless wrath of crashing waves. Enjoy the ambiance as sounds of waves pummeling the craggy cliffs burst into your ears.
Next, traverse the coast to the dazzling blue waters at Guincho Beach. Watch windsurfers and surfers alike slide along whitewater waves. Arrive in Estoril and leisurely walk with your guide through the elegant streets covered with fun outdoor cafes and bistros. Refuel with a cup of coffee (own expense) and then hop back in the vehicle for a beautiful drive back along the pristine Estoril Coast. As your private day trip from Lisbon comes to a close, admire several more beaches and the beautiful gardens of Casino Estoril. End your tour back at your hotel.
